A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

His goddess, oversized jammies and all.

When I make an effort, he notices. When it's been a long day, he becomes completely blind. He doesn't see disheveled hair, tired eyes, frumpy clothes. Or if he does, he ignores them. And when I need it most, or even when I don't, he stops to say that I'm the most beautiful woman in the world. I know that what he really means is that I am the most beautiful woman in *his* world, and I wonder how it can be true, after changing yet another diaper, after nearly breaking down in tears after a long day with an emotional toddler or after failing to make the house perfect, again. But there it is. He thinks I'm beautiful. That's all I could ask for.
